    For those looking for some context, Martin Sheen has joined and protested for all sorts of left-wing causes, including against Israel, which is probably a big reason why he’s getting this award. Meanwhile, Dubai is an unelected monarchy, where Islam is the official religion and only recipient of government funds; the only religion allowed to proselytize, censorship of the media, homosexuality is punished harshly, exploits legions of foreign peons forced to work extra hours at below advertised wages or none at all, etc.
